I looked in memories and didn't see anything about this: My question is, when starting dreads with curly hair, will your hair become shorter or longer? I had dreads before, and didn't see a big chnage in length, though they did seem to be straighter. thanks--sorry if I missed this question in the memories.

dreadlocks are a symbol of the rastifarian religion. to the rastifari, dreadlocks is a religous sacrement. white people, especially those who call themselves rastifari so they can smoke weed "ritually" and grow their hair long, for no reason other than to "smoke weed "ritually" and grow their hair long", is irresponsible and disrespectful. Rastas rock dreads. not white middle class kids. have some respect. "
